The company, which provides research and software tools as well as consulting services to healthcare and education firms, said it would sell its education business for $1.55 billion and its healthcare business for $1.3 billion, including debt.

Evercore and Macquarie Capital were the financial advisers to Vista Equity Partners, while Kirkland & Ellis LLP was its legal adviser. The Advisory Board is also selling its education division to San Friscisco-based Vista Equity Partners for $1.55 billion.

"We believe this is the best course of action for our stockholders, members and employees", he said.

The Advisory Board has 3,800 employees, according to Bloomberg data, and roughly $807 million in annual revenue.

The Advisory Board said in February it was exploring strategic options and hired Goldman Sachs Group and Allen & work on potential plans.

The deal is expected to close by the end of 2017 or in early 2018 and is contingent on shareholder approval and certain closing conditions.
